Metrology Industry’s First Desktop Data Collection Kiosk Introduced

Component Distributors, Inc (CDI Precision Measurement) has introduced the Metrology Industry’s first Desktop Data Collection Kiosk. CDI introduces the GCP-1, Gage Collector Pro.  GCP-1 is a desktop kiosk designed for the Quality Control/Gaging Operator to facilitate simple collection of measured data from digital gages on the shop floor via wired or wireless interfaces.

Gage Collector Pro will deliver powerful analysis from user defined Specifications (“Spec Plans”).  These measured results automatically migrate to a real-time display where pre-determined nominal, control, and spec limits are set by the user.

The hardware boasts of a 21.5” touch screen panel PC, on a super-robust tilting stand, giving the operator an excellent visual of a split screen containing the spec plan collection parameters, and the resulting real-time data plots.  The “resistive-touch” screen is ideal for any shop floor conditions.

The pre-loaded software is Prolink Corporation’s world leading “Gagestation” data collection software.

GageStation is a combination license of both QC-Gage and QC-CALC Real-Time for a gage bench. QC-Gage is a full-featured data collection application for use with Digital Gaging Transducers and Hand Held Gages with SPC. The software allows inspectors to enter measurement data by keyboard or through a direct connection to one or more gages. It displays data both graphically and in table format, and automatically interfaces with QC-CALC Real-Time. By using GageStation, users can identify and isolate out-of-conformance parts. QC Gage and QC Calc Realtime fit comfortably together on the wide screen.

For those looking to have a “Mobile” solution, the GCP-1 Kiosk can be added to the optional podium, which also provides a rolling Kiosk to move between work stations.  Podiums are furnished with heavy duty locking casters.

CDI Precision Measurement Group is  an international supplier of Gaging and Metrology Solutions, with a keen focus on Data Collection Management from the shop floor QC Department.  While most suppliers sell gages, tools, and probes, CDI Precision Measurement works closely with Customer Quality Control Teams to develope solutions to help manage the data necessary for all  inspection needs.
